10 Key Things To Know About Jeep Compass


1. Extremely plush - The ski grey interiors deliver this experience, owing to the use of the choicest of leather and impeccable seat design, in order to offer maximum comfort even in the toughest terrains. The Jeep® Compass offers two more interior options.



2. Active Drive with Selec-Terrain® - Active Drive engages when traction is needed to deliver the signature Jeep® capability. The Active Drive system is configured to maximise fuel economy. This system includes the Selec-Terrain® dial, which provides four modes (Auto, Snow, Sand and Mud) for the best four-wheel-drive performance on or off the road, in any weather.



3. Uconnect® Infotainment System - The infotainment on offer includes the signature Uconnect® system on a 7.0 Touchscreen. This gives you control over work and play with the ability to mirror your phone onto the system with *Android Auto and Apple Car play.



4. Electronic Parking Brake (EPB) - The EPB adapts based on the driver's actions. The automatic drive away release system senses if the vehicle is safe to launch and disengages. It also engages automatically when it senses open doors and unbuckled seatbelts while the driver exits the vehicle without engaging the parking brake. The EPB ensures safety leaving you stress-free to enjoy every ride.



5. 7-Speed DDCT - The Jeep® Compass sports a 7-speed Dual Dry Clutch Transmission. This lends split second gear changes which ensure a smooth drive at all speeds while keeping the vehicle fuel efficient.



6. Powerful Engines - When it comes to the engine you can choose between the 2.0 Multijet II diesel engine that drives a force of 173 ps, putting out a torque of 350Nm. Or the 1.4 Multiair Petrol engine that belts out 162 ps with a torque measure250Nm.



7. Hill Start Assist - HSA contributes to the safety of the vehicle and its passengers. In any situation if you find yourself on an incline HSA automatically engages and stops the vehicle from rolling back, giving you a few seconds to accelerate forward.



8. Leather Wrapped Steering Wheel - The leather wrapped steering wheel is one example of this. It provides for comfortable grip and ample feedback while giving the interiors a suave and sporty look. The wheel is also ergonomically designed with audio and phone controls placed in a way that your focus never shifts off the road.



9. Over 50 Safety & Security Features - In addition to a strong body structure the vehicle is equipped with advanced chassis controls including Four-channel Anti-lock Brakes, full function Traction Control, Electronic Stability Control, Panic Brake Assist, Hydraulic Boost Failure Compensation and Electronic Roll Mitigation. These features enable you to pre-empt any untoward driving situation and minimise damage.



10. Dual-Zone Automatic Temperature Control - This feature provides for a perfect driving atmosphere. Temperatures can be set separately for the driver as well as the passenger side. Making every drive a comfortable one.



Verdict

The Jeep Compass will compete with the likes of the Tata Hexa, Mahindra XUV500, Toyota Innova and Hyundai SantaFE. The new Jeep Compass will be available in three variants, namely; Sport, Longitude and Limited.  At 14.95 Lacs, its a steal. . However we strongly feel, if you can afford this SUV,  you can blindly go for it.
